Zinédine Zidane does not finally succeed Didier Deschamps at the head of the France team, as he had hoped for a year and a half. “Zizou” is now in demand all over the world.
What about the rest of the coaching career of Zinedine Zidane ? Triple winner of the Champions League with Real Madrid (2016, 2017 and 2018) as well as double champion of Spain (2017 and 2020), “Zizou” saw himself taking over theFrench team in the wake of the 2022 World Cup. It is missed, since Didier Deschamps therefore extended and this, until the World Cup 2026!
After a year and a half of waiting, Zidane, who had announced that he wanted to find a job quickly in the wake of his second reign with the Merengues, is in total expectation. Qatar had asked him last year to lead PSG, but the track is no longer relevant. Juventus also thought of their former playmaker, but since then the Bianconeri have made an incredible comeback in Serie A, still under the leadership of Massimiliano Allegri.
Zidane at the 2026 World Cup?
Zidane could well continue his family vacation while waiting for a new revolution at PSG or Juve. According to The team, he would not see himself directing another selection than France, after having been approached by Brazil, Portugal but also by the American federation! “Zizou” at the head of Team USA, an absolutely improbable hypothesis, this inflamed football fans across the Atlantic for a few hours.
US national team followers were thrilled to see US Soccer executives getting so ambitious as the ousting of Gregg Berhalter (on the hot seat in a domestic abuse case) is underway reflection. The American federation obviously wants to hit hard when it comes to preparing for the 2026 World Cup, which the Stars and Stripes will play at home. Zidane was a good idea.
You can’t score if you don’t try.
You have to love the ambition from U.S. Soccer if the Zidane report is true – shoot for the very best. Nothing to lose. pic.twitter.com/tYBwLVjmdq
